HC Deb 01 April 1958 vol 585 cc115-6W
Mr. Stonehouse

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies which organisations were represented at the conference on urban problems at Ndola in February; and what were the numbers of Africans who attended from Uganda, Kenya, Tanganyika, Zanzibar, Nyasaland, Northern Rhodesia, Swaziland, Basutoland, and Bechuanaland, respectively.

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

This was an intergovernmental conference at official level. It was attended by three officials from the Colonial Office, by the Director of the Rhodes-Livingstone Institute, and by delegations nominated by the Governments of Kenya, Tanganyika, Uganda, Zanzibar, Northern Rhodesia and Nyasaland, and by observers nominated by the Governments of the Federation of Rhodesia and Nyasaland and Southern Rhodesia, and of Swaziland. Apart from two sociologists, these delegations consisted of central and local government officials directly concerned with urban problems. They did not include any Africans.
